Night fades to darkness,
with only the sound of crickets to hear.
Clouds roll over the moon,
creating a moment of fear.
For even in night
does the moon shed its light
allowing us to see our way
as stars shimmer across.
A rustle in the leaves,
the wind moving trees,
it all becomes unfamiliar,
even the gentle breeze.
Our minds shift and turn
making us ache for direction on where to go,
what path to take,
something to remind us our lives are not at stake.
Once the clouds clear,
our path lies before us.
The moon now shimmering with the stars
lying across the dark sky like dust.
Take heed for just because there is no light now
does not mean there won't be any again.
Just have to push on and keep going
until you reach the journey's end.
